    It was educational, but I felt that I was treated as though I couldn't be responsible without close supervision.

    Former Employee - AmeriCorps Volunteer  in  Salt Lake City, UT
    Former Employee - AmeriCorps Volunteer in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Salt Lake County, UT

    Pros

    It provides a good jumping off point for working in the nonprofit sector (speaking specifically of my AmeriCorps work with them). I appreciated the ability to network with other AmeriCorps at monthly meetings. This provided me with new ideas and resources to take back to the organization I was working with in order to better serve its target population.

    Cons

    My experience with Salt Lake County was one of condescension toward employees, unprofessional emails, and overall distrust of the basic competency of AmeriCorps volunteers to complete the basic tasks needed to liaise between the organizations they were volunteering at and Salt Lake County, the organization that was actually paying them their stipend.
    Pay was low, but I believe that is the case with all AmeriCorps positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a collaborative environment where AmeriCorps volunteers feel a part of the process. Trust that these individuals working at organizations throughout the community have important things to offer the county and actively listen to what they have to offer. Treat them as equals and, I believe that experience will be a much more positive one for both them and you.

    Pros

    The benefits are terrific in a climate where benefits are continually being stripped away, Salt Lake County continues to provide employer paid family insurance at an 80/20 premium rate. Management is also aware of the need to take time off and do their best to accomodate people in being able to use the time they have accrued.

    Cons

    You can get whipsawed back and forth at times as policies change. There are many elected officials that are all vying for authority and competing to flex their muscles, and you can get shot down if caught in the crossfire. There is no central place for policy or direction, leaving many confused. Each department or division has its own culture, which can be good or bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate and trust your people. At times it can feel like a witch hunt in an effort to assess blame for something gone wrong, whien in reality, people are trying to do what they think is right. That's made difficult because they senior management doesn't really give a clear direction on values and culture.
